Cycling on a Lazy Saturday Afternoon – Punggol PCN

The girls came down with Hand Foot & Mouth Disease, but Elkan seems to be alright. So, he had to go for his English class. Tasked to bring him, I thought that it would be a great idea to explore the Punggol PCN (which I knew was in the process of being built, as I kept seeing it everytime I passed by from the TPE).

Elkan’s class started from 1:30pm, and I didn’t have to pick him up until 3pm. I had a good hour and a half to do my thing. So… what better thing to do than to cycle, explore the PCN and get some exercise at the same time? πŸ˜€

So… I packed up the bike and got ready to bring it with me in the car.
Fit all folded and ready to go!

After I dropped off Elkan, whose english class was in Seng Kang, and very near the Serangoon River, I unfolded the bike, and headed out to the River. The PCN is still being built, but I knew that at least some parts of it was already ready, as I kept seeing it from the Tampines Expressway as I drive past. The PCN was boarded up, but had a tiny area where I could get through…

From the looks of it, the PCN bike path appears to be completed! Woo Hoo!

The scenery from the PCN overlooking the Serangoon River was very soothing.. It was nice! πŸ™‚

This PCN went under and across the TPE. Well done NParks! No more crossing overhead bridges.

Can’t really see it in this photo, but far ahead, they were building a bridge connecting this PCN to the Lorong Halus area. Which means, I can cycle on the PCN all the way to Pasir Ris Park, Changi Village and ECP from my place!!! Wah!!! Solid dah!

Finally came to an abrupt end! The rest of the PCN, particularly the portion linking Punggol to Lorong Halus was still being built. I hope this gets done by years end. Can hope?

After getting out of the PCN, finally arrived at my pit stop for the day. Seng Kang Community Club. This is where the kids come for their weekly swimming lessons. Houses a McDonalds and a 7-11. πŸ™‚

Just opposite was the tempting Seng Kang Riverside Park! But I got time leow…. have to pick up Elkan, so will give this a miss and come back another time.

    You have a nice blog. If I read correctly, these photos were taken last year. I was wondering if you are able to ride from Punggol Park to Lorong Halus Bridge? I live in Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 and was looking at the PCN to Punggol Park. I want to check out the route from Punggol Park to Lorong Halus.

    Hi Clifford, i think the date came out wrong. Its actually in October 2010. πŸ™‚ Have not recently checked out if the Lorong Halus bridge is completed yet.
